Domestic violence : PLS gets involved again with the ACTIV project !

Thursday, 3 September 2020

Coordinated by POUR LA SOLIDARITÉ-PLS and co-funded by the European Erasmus+ programme, the ACTIV project - « Acting and collaborating to combat intimate violence » - has as its main objective the socio-professional (re)integration of women confronted with domestic violence.

The holidays are over for the PLS team and the new school year means new projects ! Among them, the ACTIV project will be coordinated by PLS for the next 26 months (November 2020-December 2022). With European partners from Belgium (the Local Mission of Brussels City), France (the FACE Foundation), Romania (Asociatia Touched Romania) and Spain (CEPS Projectes Socials), the aim will be to continue the work on domestic violence initiated by the CARVE and CEASE projects.

Indeed, according to a study by the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) from 2014, 1 in 3 European women face gender-based violence and more than 1 in 5 European women face domestic violence. A situation that has clearly worsened following the Covid-19 crisis

ACTIV will above all aim to strengthen collaboration and synergies between the different actors involved (support and guidance structures, companies) in the socioprofessional (re)integration of women confronted with domestic violence who have to overcome a number of obstacles in their return to work.

New tools, events for the exchange of good practices, Hackathons, etc. It will be a rich year. Stay tuned !
